Getting started


  • Flock will attempt to create a ".flock" directory in the current user's home. On Win2k this would be c:\Documents and Settings\Username\.flock\ . This can be overriden using the flock.home system property ( java -Dflock.home=c:\foo\bar ).
  • Subscriptions are stored in an OPML file.
  • Feeds are refreshed every 15 minutes
  • Aggregated feeds are also exposed as an RSS feed (with a pretty XSL) - useful if you're using some desktop notification/ticker. Use them to subscribe to URLs like http://localhost:8080/flock/feed/ or http://localhost:8080/flock/feed/my/sub/category .
